Free School Meals

The Department for Education (DfE) have launched a national free school meal voucher scheme.. We have registered all our FSM pupils for this scheme and families will receive a voucher worth £15 per child directly from DfE. These vouchers can be used at a range of supermarkets including Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose and will be sent to families by email or by post.

If your circumstances have changed and you feel that your child may qualify for free school meals you will need to apply online via clicking on this this link 

Support from Manchester City Council

The Council will continue where it can to support Households with no existing entitlement to free school meals that may be experiencing severe hardship. Residents who have become unemployed or experienced a substantial fall in income due to Covid19 are strongly advised to claim Universal Credit and Council Tax Support or seek other available financial support from the Government. See the Council’s Coronavirus - Benefits and money webpage for more advice.

Key Worker Information Request

We will continue to provide  reduced provision for the children of key workers and children with the most needs.

Government advice is that parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response include those who work in health and social care and in other key sectors. Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. And every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.

The Government definition of  key worker is available by clicking here.

Please contact the school via email to - or alternatively call the school office on 0161 681 0407 (option 3) if you need to access our reduced provision.
